    I didn't know that many people cared enough to hate sequels to some of those where they had to make a list to tell people to give them another chance.

    Deservedly not on the list: Ghostbusters 2. Nowhere near as good as the original. Surprised not to see Nightmare on Elm Street 3, which may be the best of the franchise.

    Wow, an internet list about movies that isn't bitching about how bad they are? Cool.

    Pretty much agree with all but the last two.

    Bogus Journey is, and always has been, awesome. It is my favorite of the two.

    I can agree with most of those and only about 2 of them I haven't seen, however Crocodile Dundee 3 sucked in my opinion. Halloween 3 should be on that list IMO, because if it hadn't had the Halloween brand name on it, it was a perfectly good stand alone movie that I still enjoy watching.

    The list is okay but it took a hit when it put Die Hard 2 on the list. That movie was bloody great.

    I clicked on it and crossed my fingers to see Gremlins 2 on there... Yay! I still love that film. I was surprised to see BTTF 3 on there. Did it do that badly when it was released?

    Absolutely!

    Who doesn't like BTTF3? I want to punch them in the face for being a dumb dork. Or perhaps dump a large pile of manure on their heads.

    By and large NoES3:TDW is considered the best in the franchise after the original, so it would be out of place on this list.

    I do think BTTF3 is an odd choice - I always thoug baht it was BTTF2 that got the bad press, and BTTF3 was overrated.
